Accommodation in Casa di Gallo

The house, although over 200 years old, offers modern conveniences and flexibility, whether you are a family, a couple, a writer or an artist. All the rooms are located on the first and second floors of the main house and the thick old walls keep the heat outside in the summer and inside during the winter:
Sitting & Dining Room: This spacious and light room has large triple-aspect windows with magnificent panoramic views over the surrounding countryside, a large dining room table that extends to ten, comfortable sofas, a log fire, an extensive library of books on Italian history, wine, and cooking and comprehensive information on the area, activities and restaurants. There is also WIFI, English satellite TV, an ipod docking system, CD player, DVD player and DVD library.
Kitchen: Adjacent to the dining room is a fully fitted kitchen with doors leading to a large terrace. This is a perfect spot for al fresco dining and cold glasses of Prosecco whilst watching the evening sun set. Modern kitchen amenities include a Smeg oven, two fridges, coffee machine, washing machine, a hairdryer, dishwasher, international adaptors,a liquidiser, and a pasta machine for those who enjoy making their own fresh pasta.
Bedrooms: The main house has four large bedrooms (two doubles and two twins plus an additional single bed): two overlooking the sunny courtyard, with traditional vaulted ceilings, one looking west and the other the mountains. After a long day of wine tasting or sunbathing we believe that it's essential to come home to hot showers, fluffy towels, comfortable beds and luxurious sheets - those 300 thread count Egyptian cotton ones made in Italy. The master bed is over two metres long and there are two modern bathrooms, one with double washbasins and both fitted with showers and loos, and 'all enveloping' fluffy FRETTE towels.
Outside areas: As well as the kitchen terrace, the large courtyard in front of the house is another great place for sunbathing, relaxing, eating and reading. The petanque court is a wonderful area for friendly boules competitions and the seperate "rustico" has a table tennis and football table inside. Our children use this as their "club house" and play Secret Seven in there! We have sunloungers, hammocks, garden tables and chairs, a barbeque, a wood to explore, wildlife to watch, fruit to pick, and, finally, a garage to keep cars cool and out of sight.
Children: There are some children's DVD's, a range of toys and games including a doll's house, a liquidiser, baby bath, highchair, table booster seat, bed side rail and travel cot.
